Writing as Meditation – Enhance Your Writing Skills and Develop Your Writer’s Voice
Writing can be a form of meditation. Writing your thoughts, feelings, and ideas is a powerful way to get to know yourself and find – or develop – your writer’s voice.
Meditation offers clarity, insight and a sense of peace. It can ground you in the present moment, a valuable tool for reducing stress and connecting you with your truth. In turn, this can inspire more honesty in your writing, resulting in a more authentic, original voice.
The practice of observing something with minute attention and then describing it also facilitates writing as a fine art, where each word adds the picture created in the reader’s mind.
The class will open with a guided centering followed by 10 minutes of free flowing, uncensored, stream of consciousness writing.
Then we will engage in a brief contemplative meditation, where we focus our attention on an object (inspired by literature), and observe it in detail. We will pick up our pens again to write in response to the object or about the experience of our contemplation.
The writing in this lunchtime class will not be shared. It is a personal exploration in a supportive environment that combines the benefits of meditation, journaling and prompts, all in 30 minutes!
